, the new season of "biggest loser" kicks off. another sign that slimming down is big business. so, you know, the thing about "the biggest loser" i have an ocd with it. the main thing is exercise. they don't talk much about food but it must be a big part of it. i loved seeing the first lady on the show. there's a social pressure piece about these are people that were less valuable at this size and more valuable and better human beings at this size. how do we counter balance "let's move"? >> i think it's so important to understand people who can treat their body in a healthy fashion, if they can exercise and feel great about themselves and they demonstrate that, people have a huge respect no matter what your body type or size is if you are treating your body well. i think if you are doing those things that don't make you feel great, you are going to exude a different, you know, reception from different individuals. when you see someone exercising, that really gives, you know, the opportunity for people to respect you. >> unless you are a january new year's resolution people who get

or threatening to do it are incredibly slim. i want to make sure this is clear. we do have this actual political battle that is coming up. it gets to the heart of what we are talking about when we talk about debt, when we talk about the debt ceiling and the deficit. everyone throws the words around, right? this is the subject of every conversation on the beltway now. deficit-debt. my sense is essentially no one knows what those words mean. what that thing is pointing to and what the implications of the meaning of that are. before we get to that, dylan, on the political question, do you think -- i mean is the idea that we should all be thinking is the republicans are essentially hinting that they'll go, you know, cause a half shutdown but not really mean it. here is john boehner on the debt limit fight essentially seeming to indicate maybe back off and hedge a little bit. he hedges noting he is not the ultimate leverage. republican stronger card boehner believes the sequester triger that trims all discretionary programs, how do you read this in terms of what they're going to do?
